Throwing in some very interesting TED talk from November this year

Enjoy. :)

Awesome. I recall doing some DNA imaging using AFM way back in 2005?. I was finding it hard to get my head around the fact that a bunch on molecules could react/interact in such a way as to produce an entire human being !

Could the Holy Spirit and the Archangels be working behind the scenes? Luckily, I don't think it will be easy to prove that there is a connection between spirit and how it influences this world. Didn't Jesus say something about thanking God for keeping the secrets of the kingdom of God away from the learned men (can't recall the context of that or if it is relevant here)

This guy has no idea what dangers lie in what he's doing! As well, he's asserted what is only an assumption, that evolution has been optimizing the molecules of life for billions of years. But his team has merely synthesized from what already exists. This is the mentality of scientists who are willing to take risks that might produce catastrophic results.

Way too late for that Mr Philip. Chinese researcher already makes the worlds first gene edited twin babies....

When it comes moral, ethical, health, medical, religious or human rights issues on this particular subject, I don't reckon the Chinese will be listening with any great degree of concern.

Note that there was a 'Professor Deem' who also took part in the work that altered the twins' genetics. Where have I heard that name before y:-?

quote from the articles:

"Dr Handasyde said not many golden possums are seen in the wild, as those born with the mutation do not always live long."

lol, scientists don't even know how to make drugs without side effects, let alone DNA modification, except it would suck to be born a failed science experiment
